Well-placed Talent

Schechter Reed is a woman-owned staffing firm, created to address a pressing need for high-caliber administrative, HR, recruiting and operational talent in metropolitan D.C. Since 2003, our clients have relied on us to understand their unique hiring needs and culture and provide well-placed professionals who fit.




Schechter Reed keeps the recruiting machine in a constant state of motion. While we receive many of our candidates and jobs through referrals, we are constantly mining for both. Our goal is to establish relationships with qualified candidates before they begin actively job searching. Similarly, we are proactive in identifying clients who may have key administrative and HR hires-those with changes in leadership, venture-capital funding, corporate offices based elsewhere, newly-awarded contracts and lean internal recruiting resources. Connecting top talent with organizations who value employees will always be our goal.


Schechter Reed is a dynamic recruiting and staffing firm that aims to elevate the staffing industry and humanize the placement process. We maintain a commitment to build long-lasting relationships with the local community of career-seekers and client companies alike. We recognize that candidates and clients have many options in choosing a placement partner and we strive not to be the biggest but to be the most trusted and helpful resource in making connections. Within our client companies, we will only place highly-regarded, thoroughly-vetted candidates who are qualified for the job. We will back up those placements with a guarantee that acknowledges the complexity that accompanies any new pairing. With our career-seeking candidates, we will work to build trust to navigate the process of self-exploration and career goals. Building confidence and empowering candidates to discover their natural strengths will trump placement. Schechter Reed is a company that aims to represent and place the area’s top talent but will do so with heart.



We take pride in being the go-to for all things workforce-related. While our specialty is in administrative and HR placement, we love making introductions to our trusted partners.


Our network of partner recruiters covers almost every specialty in the workforce.


Beyond recruiting, we have long-standing relationships with HR consulting firms, employment attorneys, benefits brokers, RPO’s, HRIS providers, executive coaches, resume writers and leader development programs. Contact us anytime for an introduction.
